I broke 3 ribs approx 2 yrs ago. I have always had a tender spot on the left side rib area. Sometimes when taking a shower I seemed to turn a wrong way and cause extreme pain in me side and it would take several days to feel better. Now believe it or not , I had a fall this past Sat and broke me 7th rib. I m in terrible pain although taking pain pills and muscle spasm meds. Could I have torn cartilage in my rib area, if so what can be done to get this better any faster? Both injuries were on my left side.

Hello. About 2 weeks ago, I broke both my right hip and two ribs on my right side in a car accident. It still hurts a bit to move around too much but for some reason, when I m just resting in bed, I ll get a sharp, unbearable pain in my ribs. Is there something wrong or is it just the healing process? Is it just soreness? This is my first time ever breaking a rib, so I m pretty lost. I don t know if it has anything to do with anything but I just recently turned 16 so I don t know, maybe taking into consideration I m still growing/developing or something. Thanks.
